Former US President Donald Trump said on Monday that Israel would not have been attacked on Oct. 7 if he had still been president, and pledged to “solve” the “horrible” situation in the Jewish state if he is reelected in November.

In his victory speech after winning the Iowa caucuses by a landslide with 20 delegates, the Republican frontrunner for the White House declared from the state capital in Des Moines that the current president, Democrat Joe Biden, is the “worst president that we’ve had in the history of country.”

Trump, who served as president from 2017 until 2021, claimed that if he had remained in Washington, “Russia would not have attacked [Ukraine], Israel would never have been attacked.”

He said that these two issues would be resolved quickly should he be voted back into office later this year.

“The Ukraine situation is so horrible, the Israeli situation is so horrible, what’s happened. We’re going to get them solved, we are going to get them solved very fast,” he said.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis finished in distant second place to Trump with eight delegates, edging out Trump’s former US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, with seven delegates. Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, who finished fourth with three delegates, announced that he is suspending his campaign and endorsed Trump.

    Words are just words. Only the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, whose land Israel is, can bring an end to the conflict. God wants Israel to rely on Him alone. God does not want a man DEIFIED because of grandiose utterings. He wants Israel to return to Him and live Torah-obserevant lives.
